tv Today NBC April 5, 2016 7:00am-9:58am EDT
good morning. game changer? >> the entire country is looking to wisconsin. >> if we do well here, folks, it's over. >> all eyes on today's crucial vote in wisconsin. >> we win here, we win in new york state, we're on our way to the white house. >> polls tighteningp in the final days. what will winning or losing there mean for the future of the race? spring of our discontent. 100 million americans waking up to another day to have bone-chilling cold. in some places, 10 to 20 degrees below normal. while snow and wind create havoc on the roads, and there's no warmup in sight. buh-bye. a united airlines flight
after deploying the chute. her actions are called unsafe. what caused her to make the hasty exit? and a buzzer beater. >> for the championship! >> the villanova wildcats hit an incredible three-pointer with no time on the clock to win the national title. the dramatic moment setting off a massive celebration on campus. a finish being called one of the greatest ever. today, tuesday, april 5th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everybody. it's tuesday, april 5th, 2016. you stayed up late and watched the game? >> i was watching. some of the students we just saw, probably just coming in from the bar on the campus of villanova. that shot
north carolina ties the game. at the buzzer, chris jenkins putting his name in the history books. we have breaking news just this morning. >> that's right. classes at villanova are cancelled today. that probably is the reaction. >> no school for you, villanova. enjoy this one. we'll have more on the incredible game. a game they're calling one of the best in the history of all sports. that's ahead. first, let's get to the top story, politics. the drama unfolding in the presidential race. today, voters are heading to the polls in wisconsin. on the republican side, ted cruz is leading in the polls ahead of donald trump in one poll by six poi points, and 25 ahead of kasich. for the democrats, bernie sanders is ahead of clinton by the slightest of margins. we have it covered. first up, peter alexander, who is in milwaukee for us. good morning. >> hey,
good morning to you. both the races here in wisconsin are going down to the wire. for the republicans, donald trump is trying to squeeze out a win, trying to avoid being shut out in the delegate contest, while ted cruz is arguing a victory for him here could reset this race. >> reporter: the war in wisconsin. donald trump gunning for a come from behind victory today against ted cruz. >> if we do well here, folks, it's over. >> donald trump has gotten his rear end whipped over and over and over again for a straight two weeks. >> reporter: rejoining trump on the road, wife melania. >> when you attack him, he will punch back ten times harder. >> reporter: later reacting for the first time publicly to the anti-trump ad, highlighting an old modeling shot. >> i have a tough skin. i think it's not fair they're attacking family, wife or children. it's unfair. >> repor
giving his denial about allegations of infidelity. >> i've always been faithful to my wife. i love my wife. she's my best friend in the world. this is the garbage the trump campaign engages in. >> reporter: john kasich mocking trump for trying to push him out of the race. >> he says he needs to get out because he's getting my votes, and i want to have my votes. this is not fair. i thought we got out of the sandbox years ago. >> reporter: trump's latest target, the gop delegate system. >> so we're dealing with a corrupt system. we're dealing with a system that's not fair. >> reporter: republicans briefed on the process pushing back, telling nbc news it's always been delegates who select the nominee. house speaker paul ryan insists it won't be him. >> when people put my name in, i say, get my name out. if you want to be president, you run for president. that's the way i see it
campaign bracing for a loss. already investing energy on her home turf in mornew york. arguing sanders' path includes overturning the will of the voters. sanders keeps working. >> when people come back in, reclaim their democracy and stand up and fight back, then we win. >> the democrats' debate over debates has ended. hillary clinton and bernie sanders will face off april 14th in brooklyn, just five days before new york state's primary. willie and savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you. chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press," is in studio with us today. >> good morning. >> you have a couple tight races in wisconsin according to the polls. let's talk about how the delegates are handed out. >> today is more about momentum than it is about delegates. on the democratic side, you have 96 up for grabs. they d
proportionally. it's possible when you look at the pledged delegate lead, about 250 for hillary clinton, bernie sanders needs a double digit victory in order to make a little bit of progress here. it's not going to make a lot. this would be about momentum going into new york state. less about delegates. the republican side, not many up for grabs. what's interesting, it's very possible that tonight, trump could get a goose egg. it's that which is important. if cruz gets the majority, kasich could finish third, because he's doing well in one district around madison. a lot of republicans in madison. both of them may be kasich supporters and could give him delegates. >> trump -- oh, trump -- chuck, grab a seat here. for a while, the polls were showing cruz with a ten-point lead. it's tightening up now.
not getting the independent number right. that could be tricky about this. this is an open primary. you could get the sanders number wrong and the cruz number wrong because of the rules of who can vote. >> cruz has a sizable lead? >> i think. and sanders has a small lead. >> nicolle wallace also joining us this morning. remember the question after iowa was, could donald trump take a punch after having lost a state? can he take a punch if he loses wisconsin, given the circumstances of the last two weeks, all the things he's been through, the things he's done and said? is the dynamic different this time if he loses? >> i think it is but no one should underestimate his ability to remake himself in his campaign. i think the story tonight is the tortoise is going to lap the hare. trump has a terrible campaign but he's been this charismatic, all-powerful and compelling figure. cruz
politician but he had a superior campaign organization and is a disciplined messenger. this is where the turtle passes the hare in the race. i think trump is completely capable of improving his campaign. >> chuck, you have a different view. the do you think trump, if he loses, can adjust and make the tweaks to get back in the game? >> if this were a traditional candidate, yes, because the things to do are on jous. >> a-- obvious. >> past performance is likely to be indicative of future behavior. people have been telling him this for months. racket it back. prep for five minutes before an interview. >> do you think if he loses, he -- >> we'll see. we also never had this if he loses, and it's double digits. i think the margin matters. two weeks, he's got to stew in this. >> yeah. >> two weeks. iowa, you had six days. boom, new hampshire. he had this big lead going in. he had a
what's going to be the narrative changer for him? two weeks, that's a long time. >> nicolle, democratic side, you have two weeks. whatever happens tonight in wisconsin. if hillary clinton loses, it's still an uphill climb for bernie sanders. what would a sanders victory mean for the race tonight? >> it would be a psychological blow to the clinton campaign. it shows you how different the democratic race is from the republican race. you see him already preparing to figure out how to begin to talk about getting out. i think the national party structure on the democratic side is so much stronger, and there's so much more response to it than on the republican side. >> you have to give sanders credit. i think they're setting up a way to get out. he is raising expectations for himself in new york. basically saying, hey, i know i have to beat her here in order to say i have a chance at this thing. that also means he knows it's
>> we'll see if it plays out. congratulations on not talking about the basketball game, guys. >> they'll make multiple documentaries on this one. >> another 15 minutes before the show, we talked about basketball. >> unbelievable. >> good to see you guys. thanks. clash of the seasons. as winter lingers into spring, a large chunk of the east under a deep freeze and the cold will be here for a while. dylan is up in frigid boston. good morning. >> good morning, willie. you know, i was getting a little bit too cozy in the warm studio this winter. i am back out in it. the wind chill right now is 9 degrees. now, on average, boston picks up 2 inches of snow in april. since sunday, we've picked up more than 6 inches. even though the snow has stopped the falling, the temperatures have not. it's not just here. nearly 100 million people are facing this deep freeze. >> reporter: this morning, winter has an extra spring in its step. >> not enjo
>> reporter: overnight, round three of this deep freeze. >> it's like getting a snowball in the face. >> reporter: an april anomaly. >> how do i explain it? no idea. >> reporter: and a deadly one. this crash in upstate new york left one person dead on monday. the death toll in the winter blast now at three since sunday. and it's wreaking havoc on the roads. in upstate new york, this bus carrying college kids rolled over on to its roof. 20 of them got hurt, but they're expected to be okay. in massachusetts, it's wicked slippery. cars and big rigs swerving off the highway and into trees. just released, police dashcam video shows a frightening scene. wind knocking a tree down on to the road in new jersey. a truck slamming into it head on. >> you all right? >> reporter: no one was injured. the conditions so bad, at least three baseball teams delaying or postponing their opening games. and there's little end in sight. this
temperatures with wind chills in the teens from detroit to boston. as for people bracing the cold, they hope this is winter's last go, at least until next year. >> i'm ready to be done with it. >> it's pretty but it needs to stop. >> one of those postponed baseball games was the indians homeowner in cleveland against the red sox. the game wouldn't have been much better if it was played in boston. back in new york state, we do have already broken record low temperatures this morning. al, i'm going to leave the long-range forecast to you. it doesn't look like this bitter cold is going to end any time soon. >> thanks for leaving me with the good news, dylan. warm up. let's check out what dylan was talking about. jet stream way down to the south. the polar air is streaming in, and it's not going anywhere any time soon. right now, wind chills feel like they're in the teens, from boston to indianapolis. at noontime, wind chills will be in the 20
tomorrow morning, this is the core of the cold air, it'll feel like 14 below in new york city. 7 below in washington. 10 below in roanoke. boston will feel like 13 below. it doesn't warm up. wednesday's highs stay below average along the east coast. a little warmer out west. thursday, look at this, everybody, way below normal. as we head into the weekend, no really good news in sight. we are looking at temperatures that are going to be anywhere, guys, 10 to 30 degrees below average. we're not going to see temperatures getting back to normal until early to mid next week. >> oh, al. all right. don't like to hear that, but thank you anyway. now to the investigation into the amtrak train crash near philadelphia. it killed two workers who were on the tracks. this morning, it is looking like human error may have been a factor. tom costello has more. >> investigators tell me they've reviewed the data from the black boxes. the engineer slammed on the brakes just fiv s
sitting on the tracks. the question is, why were those maintenance crews there in the first place? >> reporter: this morning, investigators want to know why amtrak maintenance equipment was sitting on two sets of tracks sunday morning as train 89 approached at 106 miles per hour, just under the posted limit of 110. >> we're still gathering facts on that information, as to who had the authority to be on that track. >> reporter: the train slammed into a backhoe, killing two amtrak workers with decades of experience. later today, investigators plan to interview other members of the work crew. among their questions, did miscommunication play a role? why was the crew repairing rail ties on a still active amtrak line? investigators in washington have now reviewed the train's black boxes and the outward looking camera that captured the crash. >> the damage on the train was unbelievable. i mean, the luggage from the top rack was strewn all over the place. >> reporter: a pennsylvania door
took these photos of the ripped and twisted cars. >> the window had been torn out of the side of the train and was lying across two sets of the chairs. there was metal, broken glass, plastic. it looked horrific. >> there are federal railroad regulations that require multiple safety checks and systems to be in place whenever track work is underway, including a matwatchman who can give crews 15-seconds warning before a train passes. amtrak is working with the ntsb to identify what went wrong, and it'll make any needed changes, it says, immediately. back to you. >> tom costello, thank you. now to the deadly crash of a sightseeing helicopter in tennessee, killing all five people on board. smoke rising from the crash sight. by the time crews arrived, fire destroyed almost all of the wreckage. the faa is leading the investigation. officials have not yet released the names of the victims. to col

play. go do it, guys. >> incredible. the only way to overshadow north carolina's play five seconds before that tied up the game. it was also incredible. >> the shot by page would have been the shot everyone was talking about if it'd gone to overtime. instead, jenkins is the man. >> this is why people say ncaa basketball is the greatest sporting event bar none. >> hands down. >> we've got the sports down. we have to do the weather, al. >> besides the cold air, we're r making its way out west as we show you the maps. we've got a system that's going to eventually bring snow to the upper midwest. we got some rain in the pacific northwest. gorgeous day in the southwest. los angeles looking at a high of 84 and sunny. we'll get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds.

flight attendant was hit in the head by a piece of luggage. he released profanity over the speakers and grabbed his bag and went out. >> they may not have necessarily agreed with the vehicle for this statement, but people had a sense of, well, it's about time. >> reporter: that doesn't seem to be the case this time. >> was she unhappy with her employer, just had enough with all the people on the plane? she wanted peanuts? why would someone do that? >> in slater's case, he pleaded guilty to two counts. there's no word if this flight attendant will have charges. she could be hooked with the cost of re hooking the slide. $15,000 to $20,000. >>

>> it's a nightmare i'm reliving on one level. i didn't know if i was going to be able to watch it. it was so traumatic. 15 months of trauma every single day. nightmarish. at the same time, sarah, i love her so much. i've loved her for years. i think she's a genius. i couldn't resist. you know, i watch it with friends. i kind of try and pull myself out of the, it's not me. i try to just watch her. that helped. she's fabulous. she's amazing. >> you didn't get a sneak preview. they didn't come and say, let's consult? what do you think of this script? >> no, nothing. >> were you fearing the worst? >> yes, i was fearing -- i didn't even know what to fear. i didn't know how they were going to treat all of us. i didn't know how they were going to treat the case. you never know. but it actually wound up being a really quality, quality series, that attacked the big issues very well. i was so
